Established in 2008, the Golden Baobab Prize for Children’s Literature is a prestigious annual pan-African award for excellence in African children’s writing. Golden Baobab awards three prizes annually to eligible African writers: the Golden Baobab Prize for Picture Book, the Golden Baobab Prize for Early Chapter Book, and the Golden Baobab Prize for Rising Writers. Submissions go through a thorough evaluation process and the final selection of winners is made by a prestigious panel of judges. Prize submissions must be unpublished stories. Winning stories are published through Golden Baobab’s top tier publishing partners throughout the African continent. Shortlisted and outstanding non-winning stories may have the opportunity to publish through these partnerships as well.
